American Girl Ivy

Let’s talk about this fabulous outfit Ivy is wearing! First, I have a second one that is almost identical that I will be giving away starting tomorrow. This super fashion forward spring set consists of a long white tank top, orange and white polka dot sweater with a turquoise fabric pin and floral print leggings. Megan walked in a few minutes ago and said she wanted this outfit in her size – and she is in high school. I think the orange looks just so good on Ivy!

Our new little bird thinks so too! Actually, we got 3 little birds for $4 at Hobby Lobby (in the floral section – thanks for the tip Diana) over the weekend which means A Girl for All Time, Amelia, now has her pet bird Miss Lovington (from her story), Ellowyne Flights of Fancy has a bird for her bird cage, and Ivy and her friends can have a birdie, too. Such a fun little pet!

Ivy is trying to decide what to name her new little friend. I think “Rainbow” might be good, but you might have a better suggestion!

Can you tell I like this outfit on Ivy? I could have taken so many photos! She really is one of my favorites and I just think this outfit is so well suited for her personality. Julie was kind enough to let Ivy borrow her shoes, too.

Just in case you were wondering, the chair is from Kit’s collection and the backdrop is from

What should Ivy name her bird? And don’t forget to stop in tomorrow for the start of the 123 Mulberry Street giveaway!

  1. I think you should name the bird Rainbright!

  2. Ivy really looks adorable in that outfit!

    57 thie

  4. Venus- 2 dolls, one day? Lucky!

  5. so Adorable! LOVE THE OUTFIT! I think Saige will look nice in it! And I think the birds name should be flip!

  6. Hey Char, in Julie’s latest mystery, Lost In The City, Ivy’s uncle has a parrot that comes to live w/ Ivy’s family and her name is Lucy. So if that bird is gonna be Ivy’s, you should call it Lucy.

    I thought about getting Ivy, but I didn’t want a doll w/ such short hair. But I did want an Asian doll, and was lucky enough to find a #30 (the very one I wanted), at a toy show for $50. I named her Lisa. But Ivy is cute, and b/c of her short silky hair, would make a great first doll for a young American Girl fan.

    I think Ivy should name her bird “Mixy” because of all the different colors it has.

  8. Can you do a review with Ivy compared to MAG 17? I cannot decide?

  9. Sharry – then Lucy it is!! I haven’t read any of Julie’s mysteries yet.

  10. I have Ivy and you are so right she is the best!

  11. juliet_the_great says:

    So does everybody who has Ivy LOVE her? cuz’ i want her and am on the verge of getting her.

  12. Yay! Great Char! Julie’s mysteries are really good. I highly recommend them!

  13. I think rainbow is a great name for her bird :)

  14. Ivy looks so sweet and that outfit is perfect for her–love the layered look and the bright colours. Her new pet parrot is the perfect finishing touch in the photo!

  15. juliet_the_great says:

    Char- can take a picture of the earplugs, because i want Ivy but want to make sure that they aren’t a bother. THANKS!!!

  17. lanielover says:
